Montana State will be making their first visit to Grand Forks since 1983 when UND opens up Big Sky play hosting the Bobcats this Saturday at the Alerus Center.

UND sits with a 1-2 record and is coming off its bye week, as MSU is coming off a loss to Stephen F. Austin on September 21st.

Montana State, 2-2, comes in ranked 11th and knocked off UND last year in Bozeman, 55-10.

Chris Mussman, UND head coach, "Quite frankly, we shut it down last year in the fourth quarter, they had over 200 yards rushing against us, to make it even worse. That's been pointed out to the team and I think they understand, we didn't give Montana State our best effort last year. That's the focus this year for us, we want to show it, and if we don't, shame on us. Hopefully we have some pride and come out and play a very physical team."

Kickoff is set for 2:30 in Grand Forks.
